‘The ABCs Of Death 2’ Is Headed Our Way In 2014


There have been a number of notable indie horror entries thus far in 2013, but none have been quite as strange, disgusting, obscene, and downright odd as The ABCs Of Death. Featuring twenty-six short films revolving around different ways one can leave this Earth, the film was a first of its kind and brought together (literally) dozens of the biggest names in modern horror. We couldn’t help feeling there were additional filmmakers who could have done the series justice, and news this morning all but confirms the producers feel the same.

According to a new article on Variety, Magnet Films, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, will produce a sequel to ABCs of Death in association with Timpson Films and Drafthouse Films. The feature, which is scheduled for release sometime in 2014, will again feature twenty-six short tales of people/creatures meeting their fate in presumably ridiculous ways. Twenty-six new directors are being recruited for the effort, and this time a few hail from outside the horror realm, including The Last Circus’ Alex de la Iglesia, Room 237‘s Rodney Ascher, and animator Bill Plympton. No further information regarding directors or which letters they will cover has been revealed at this point.

“This time around we’re all determined to expand the concept to even more hyperkinetic, comically deranged and mortally dizzying heights of how someone can shuffle off this mortal coil,” said Ant Timpson, who will produce along with Tim League in conjunction with Todd Brown, Marc Walkow, Mitch Davis and Ted Geoghegan.

We were not thrilled with every element of the original ABCs Of Death, but critic Justin Proper did ultimately recommend it as a “must watch” for genre fans. Click here to read our full review.
